You have made a critical mistake if you assume that I think people taking me seriously is a good thing.

    About the argument surrounding the #NotYourShield tag. Why is this even an issue still.

    Here's what literally happened: 1. #GamerGate starts, every kind of person supports it and nobody gives a crap about their politics or identity. 2. The mostly white, heterosexual male journalists call the tag out for being mostly misogynist, white, heterosexual males who "live in their mothers' basements". 3. A young black man creates #NotYourShield to say that no, that is not the case. That this isn't just a small group of people hating on a few but an issue that a lot of diverse gamers care about. 4. Accusations of sockpuppetry get thrown at us. 5. We prove them wrong, time and time again that if there are sockpuppets, they number in the tens, compared to thousands, upwards of tens of thousands of real people. 6. Now people are saying the tag was "forced"? YEA of fucking COURSE it was "forced"! But get this, it was THE JOURNALISTS DOING THE FORCING. They FORCED us minorities to create the tag and use it by erasing our identity with a brush using "Misogynist White" paint.

    If anything, it just goes to show the moral character of these people to take something that was NEVER ABOUT IDENTITY and then badger into "proving" that we're "real minorities". Who the heck does that.

    Erasure, and then objectification (denial of agency by accusation of being a sockpuppet). Using a broader definition, they literally dehumanized us, and you're sitting here talkin' 'bout how the whole tag seems "forced". Yea, no.

    You can disagree with the entire rest of the movement, and I'll still consider you a decent person and literally will not give a poop if you support us, don't care at all, don't think our complaints are valid, that we're still all misogynists, whatever. But this is one point I will not give in on. "Internalized racism" my bum. Claiming that we're all just lapdogs of the White patriarchy is the single most offensive idea I have EVER come across in my entire life in regards to my identity. And believe me, I've heard some shit.

    Why is the second page of this thread broken?

    Holy crap that is actually terrible. Like, I don't think there's any doubt that these people don't take things seriously at all and think they're just all highschool kids fucking around in a videogame club. No. There is money involved and ethics do matter.

    In other news, another example of why I hate calling myself a leftist nowadays:

    I initially ignored that video because I thought it was another one that he did for money but I came across it here again and HOLY CRAP IT'S HIS LEGIT CHANNEL. WHAT A GUY.

    I don't quite believe it took me something this big to finally agree on something with @DarkChaplain, but yea. Pretty much. I've been following this entire thing since people were calling it The Quinnspiracy on 4chan /v/ at least a month and a half ago and can safely say that DC did a very very good job of covering everything.

    No it's more like Modern Mainland Chinese people take life really lightly in general. Entitled higher class children especially.
